to the people who live in the united states of america. why? because we share the same values, the same principles, the same heritage and the same enemies. because we are in the middle east today, dean attacked we ask ourselves why these people against the jewish nation in the middle east. not because of the lens we so-called occupied. it is the value we are working upon them in israel and the values of our democracy following very carefully their election here in the united states and beginning to be interesting. but we do father and we do to the american people and the american values. sometimes too much. for example today of independence in israel, a big celebration you'll find people in the israeli flag and the american flag. i don't like it. i put on my car only the israeli flag. why do people do with? to democracy and values of the american people. one of my main point in my book is israel is not america. even though we love america, we are not america and we cannot make mistakes because if you make a mistake, you pay a price, but you are able to correct it. if israel makes the mi

office, i believe america only succeeds and thrives when we got a strong and growing middle class. that's what i believe. i believe we're at our best when everybody who works hard has a chance to get ahead. that they can get a job that pays the bills. that they got health care they can count on. that they can retire with dignity and respect. maybe take a vacation once and a while. nothing fancy. you know, just -- just being able to pack up the kids and go some place and enjoy time with people that you love. make sure that your kids can go to a good school. make sure they can aspire to be whatever they want to be. that idea is what built america. that's the idea that built michigan. that's the idea that is at the heart of the economic plan i've been talking about all year long on the campaign trail. i want to give more americans the chance to earn the skills, the businesses they're looking for right now. and give our kids the kind of education they need to succeed in the 21st century. i want to make sure america leads the world in research and technology, and clean energy. i want to put

ambassador tom pickerring and admiral mike mulling, -- mullen. they were frank, and they are two of america's most distinguished and capable public servants. ambassador pickering served as under secretary to the state department and ambassador to india, russia, israel, and other important nations. admiral mullen, as we know, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. i think that their backgrounds, their service to the country showed up starkly in the quality of the boards report, and i want to thank them for their extraordinary service to our country and i want to thank secretary clinton who appointed them, who selected them. the report pulls no punches. it tackles head on many of the questions we've been asking. the report makes 29 recommendations in total, five of which are classified. secretary clinton has embraced every single one of them, in fact, she's gone above and beyond board's recommendations by taking immediate steps to strengthen security at high threat posts and request from congress the authority to reprogram funds to increase diplomatic security spending by $1.3 billion. you kn
house. >> i am very proud to announce my choice for america's next secretary of state, john kerry. in a sense, john's entire life has prepared him for this role. having served with valor in vietnam, he understands that we have a responsibility to use american power wisely, especially our military power. and he knows, from personal experience, that when we send our troops into harm's way, we must give them the sound strategy, a clear mission, and the resources that they need to get the job done. in an extraordinarily distinguished senate career and as chairman of the foreign relations committee, john has played a central role in every major foreign policy debate for nearly 30 years. as we turn the page on a decade of war, he understands that we've got to harness all elements of american power and ensure that they're working together-- diplomatic and development, economic and political, military and intelligence-- as well as the power of our values which inspire so many people around the world. he is not going to need a lot of on-the-job training. he has earned the respect and trust

morning, america and steve. this is a great time to be an american. i think we are all looking forward to the new year. i am a loyal but nervous. -- i am a little bit nervous. mitch mcconnell is the key. he can take the president over into the presidency and a came a great man. we need to make sure we let mr. mcconnell know that history is there. i know he has a lot of issues. everyone bacchant e-mail, text -- everyone can e-mail and text and let mr. mcconnell n know. the tea party is off the rail. this will make this country take off. i hope mr. mcconnell sees this. everyone out there, the game has been played. host: thank you for the call. harry is joining us from pittsburgh. caller: this whole thing is ridiculous. i started paying social security and 14. i have quite a bit of money in there. i have made my own way. record, the past money they are asking for, that is mostly white people making that money. they should call it what it is. that is still whitey's money. i wish i was as smart as it then people. a lot of people have called then and have not worked hard. everybody wants the
. then he is scheduled to come back to america. now another one of his luckiest experiences. they have a transport plane to take him to america. his arm is gone by then. he is told we don't have room for another litter. another patient on the air plane. you can't go he was disappointed but the plane crashed and killed everybody on the plane. so dan inouye was a person who considered himself lucky. those of us who knew senator inouye consider ourself lucky, just being able to know the man. after hawaii received statehood in 1959. he was their first congressman. three years later he was a electricitied to the senate and has been a soft, powerful voice for the people of hawaii ever since. the many personal courtesies he has extended me i will never forget. may not seem like much. but i had something and i was scheduled to be in florida, and i had promoted this great senator inouye was going to be there. and i got a call from henie en -- henry, who was long-time senator inouye's chief of staff. he checked the schedule and it's his wife's birthday and he can't go. i said i understand that
dealing with congressional issues? time is running out rapidly. >> should the wort happen and america effectively goes over the fiscal cliff, what will be the effects on the u.s. and, of course, the rest of the world? >> well, economists tell us -- tell us that if the u.s. goes over the fiscal cliff, just another word for a been crisis, by the way, just a budget crisis, really, economists tell us that if the fiscal cliff kicks in and all those tax increases happen and the deep spending cuts happen it could send the u.s. into recession and that could drag parts of the world with it. so, clearly, that's not very good. other economists would tell you look, if this all happens, it's going to go such a long way toward sorting out the u.s. deficit and debt problem that actually things would be ok, not as abad adds we think. many of the issues don't kick in on january 1, they kick in later in the year, maybe as late as july or august, so politicians actually have time to sort out some of the key issues. nonetheless, the politicians, in particular president obama and i think the key leaders o
america vote. they want the white house to take it. >> the administration has been visited by us to make it clear that this needs to be a high priority. we got to get alan gross back. >> alan gross is 63 years old and his family says he has health problems. he is serving a 15 year prison sentence. >> thanks so much. those five cubans were arrested in the u.s. in 1998. the castro government admits they were spying, but refers to them as heros. >>> anti-apartheid icon nelson mandella has been admit today a hospital in south africa. mandella is undergoing tests and there is no cause for alarm. in a statement they said the former south african president is doing well. he does receive medical treatment from time to time which is fairly consistent with a man his age. >>> officials at the hospital where the duchess of cambridge was treated are now publicly condemning a prank that happened just days before one of their nurses ended up dead. tonight we have an update on those pranksters. >> fellow nurses left a bouquet of flowers and a note expressing
a possibility. confidence in america will be shaken. the financial markets may take fright. president obama believes it is time for the wealthiest americans to pay more in taxes. he has made that part of his negotiating position. he criticized republicans for resisting these tax increases. >> they said the biggest party is making sure we deal with the deficit and a serious way. the way they're beating is their only priority is making sure that tax breaks for the wealthiest americans are protected. that seems to be their only overriding unifying theme. >> the republican party argues it is ready to deal. it is the president and democrats were not. >> there's no single issue that remains an impossible sticking point. the sticking point appears to be a willingness and interest, frankly, their courage to close the deal. i want everyone to know i am willing to get this done. but i need a dance partner. >> if republicans and democrats don't join the dance soon, america will enter the new year and a state of heightened political and economic uncertainty. congress can choose to put a stop to this as
lessons safeguarding america. i asked him whether jointness was too far as some critics argue. >> not every operation requires jointness. i'm sure there are some that can be best handled by a single service. and by an element rather far down in the table of organization of that service. nevertheless, i believe that the idea of jointness, joint operations, is correct because it brings together talents that each service has that the others do not have. it is probably true that too much is now happening at the unified and specified commands. they have indeed greatly increased staffs and they even have elements in washington that begin to act like lobbies. when a new problem arises, a joint task force is put together. and that makes sense. and the elements may come from more than one of the unified and specified commands. so i think another look is needed at not at the question of jointness, but at how it's carried out. and how the overhead is distributed. >> you worked in the pentagon during the vietnam war and there are those and you even mentioned certain parallels between the
america and is an on-again, off-again affair with him. >> here what i can't figure out. when do they charge their cell phones? they're always on them. always! and they're always full, never plugged into anything. not even in the car. it's always like full bars. dc, beirut, baghdad, great reception. makes the whole thing kind of unbelievable.

? i don't think any voter in america -- there are voters that are locked into one party or the other but the fastest growing group is people who vote for candidates and not parties and people understand the issues and hopes that they have and offer real and concrete policy situations and real role for government to play in addressing those angst yits they face. we are one election away to do it. we have to recognize what it is and concentrate on doing it. >> how much of a danger to republicans do you think is posed by the changing demographic? >> it's not a danger but it's a challenge. like every election it's a challenge. take what you stand for and try to convince people that it is better for them than what the other side is offering. sometimes people have forgotten the art of persuasion. it's not about what people are for and oftentimes it should be understanding what is right for the country and working hard to convince people that is the right thing for our country. that is the important part of our political process. >> why did the romney-ryan ticket lost the hispanic vote by 4

cliff today, but gun violence is another area in america where it seems we can't have a discussion without delusional claims of overreach and taking away hunting rifles. congress won't even allow statistics on gun violence to be gathered, and we certainly have made no progress towards closing the gun show loophole. i come to the floor with a small array of hope. with nearly half of all military sue sides are committed with privately owned weapons, the pentagon and congress are moving towards establishing policies to separate at-risk service members from personal private weapons. congress is poised to enact legislation to end a prohibition about the military collecting information about firearms kept at home. these are simple commonsense steps for an armed services where more military personnel take their own life than who die in battle. perhaps if we can take these reasonable steps to protect our servicemen and their families, perhaps we can have the courage to treat the epidemic of gun violence with the same thoughtful small steps when it comes to protecting the rest of our famili
